Tags are a flexible mechanism for labeling and attaching data to Sites and Gateways
The Tag Keys view enables users to manage Tag "keys," Tag Keys function as a label for the type of tag to be applied to a gateway, when a user goes to apply a Tag they will select the tag Key from the defined list of Tag keys, then set a value for that specific tag. Users can then apply these tags keys to their Sites and Gateways. Common use cases for tagging gateways include:
- Recording location information about the gateway (
site = Boston,
room = 209B)
- Remembering the purpose of the gateway (
pipeline = motion-sensors)
- Tracking Rigado PO number associated with Gateway (
ProductOrderNumber = Px012345)
- Managing App Bundles (
installer app = true) this is a legacy feature
Site Tags are tags that are applied to an entire Site. This is useful to track Site context and application information that doesn't fit into the description or location information fields provided in a Site. Site Tags also have the benefit of being added to the main Site table so you can quickly reference without opening up each Site's details pane.
To set a Site Tag click the + symbol next to the
Site: field and select the Site Tag from the list defined, then enter a value.

All Gateways will also display all inherited Site Tags at the top of its details pane.
